Excellent plot almost ruined by awful acting
Let's start the review backwards: the acting is, indeed, awful - I mean, there's not a single decent actor in the whole film, and this sure makes the film a lot harder to connect to.
On the other hand, the plot is really fresh and well worth the troubles - even if at some points you may get a bit too puzzled about what's really going on.
Bottom line: if you like sci-fi, watch it. And be nice to it - it will reward you for that.
Subconscious Cruelty (2000)
Hard to rate, hard to watch... but maybe worth it!
It's hard to define this one... Essentially, it could be said that this is an exercise on what if the left side of the brain was turned off. In fact, this means quite a lot of gore, gratuitous (and sometime senseless) blood and nudity... without any real scare or sensuality. It's gore times 10, without too much of a story "per se", but for some strange reason it's also appealing and entertaining.
Bottom line: if you want a storyline, have problems with blood, gore, torture and/or profanity, pass this one... If those are not a problem, you might get surprised... but beware: as some other reviewer pointed out, there are way too many "WTF" moments...
This Girl's Life (2003)
Great Movie With a Less-Than-Great Ending
In fact, "This Girl's Life" seems to be two movies: first, it works over the relationships of internet pornstar Moon and the world around her - this part is truly great, with very well-constructed characters (specially Moon herself and her ill father, played by James Woods) and cleverly avoiding making judgements about anything; the second, which comes up on the final third of the movie, is clearly weaker, more moralist and somehow desconstructing the characters so wonderfully built on the first part.
All in all, a movie that deserves to be seen... but it's just a shame that the end isn't just a bit less "common"...
Tuno negro (2001)
Good, but tooooo predictable!
Well... this movie is quite entertaining, a lot better than the usual "kill'em all and don't die" regular horror movie, but the problem (as with most movies alike) is that the end is soooo obvious... Also, the plot could be more consistent from the middle on... All in all, can be worth a look if it comes on TV...
Olivetti 82 (2001)
Quite an intriguing movie on this director's debut...
Very interesting adaptation of a popular european play, this movie finds a very delicate and intriguing way of addressing very controversial affairs, without making any explicit judgements or taking sides. It develops around the construction of Bernard's character, from his early days to the moment he's arrested, apparently having no idea why. This construction leads one to some deep thinking about values, life and love. Saying more than that would surely spoil the genuinely great plot.
